SSID is the "name" of the network. It is what is broadcast by the router. Default is the name of the router for example I have a linksys and it said "linksys" until I changed the name of my network. You need to check the settings on the router. Using your computer type into the address bar. You might get a pop up window that asks for a username and password. If you have never messed with the router then leave the user name blank and type ADMIN in the password. Once you access your router you can set the wireless settings by "naming" your network and setting up a "passphrase". You will need to remember the name of the network and the passphrase ro enter it in the Wii when prompted.

1. Go to the Wii settings page on your Wii - it's on the bottom left hand corner of the home menu
2. Scroll right until you see the Internet option then select
3. Select Connection Settings
4. Clear all your previous internet settings, or select one of the three presets that says none
5. Select wireless connection then search for an access point
6. Select your wireless connection name (SSID) from the resulting list
7. input the password for it if you have one then follow the onscreen instructions

Hope this helps!

Where do you find the ssid code to connect to the enternet with the wii


You will need the SSID and the network key/password (if you have one set up). The SSID is on the wireless router and is the network name. You may need the password also to access the net on the Wii.

What is SSID number for my will

Your WII will not have an SSID. The SSID will from your router, it is the name of the wireless network you connect to on your computer.If security is enable on your router you will need that same password when you try to connect your WII to your network.

You need to know the Network Name (SSID) and the Network Key of your Router. You can find that on the router settings page. Heres how you can connect your Wii

1. Go to Wii settings
2. Internet connection settings
3. Search for an AP (Network Name or SSID)
4. Input security key (Network Key)

Im trying to connect to the wireless connection and it keeps asking me for SSID NUMBER AND IT KEEPS GIVING ME ERROR 51330

The error is due to the fact that you either leave the SSID number blank or are giving it an incorrect number. I think you may be in the incorrect system setting. I don't have my Wii in front of me but I'm fairly certain that, unless you're internet is password protected, You shouldn't have to post any information. I think there may be a chance that you are attempting to connect to a network that isn't your own. Just a guess, but I'd say it may be a pretty good guess.
What I am certain about is that the SSID (which is just a fancy name for "network name") should be titled on your Wii as whatever your home network is titled. For example, if your wireless system is called linksys, then your SSID should be titled linksys. These can be case sensitive so keep that in mind.
I hope this helps!

Cant connect my wii get error 51030

This might be handy: and
Try adjusting the "Channel" your wireless router broadcasts on. We highly recommend setting your wireless router to either channel 1 or 11. This can potentially increase the download speed.

Verify that the proper Connection File (1, 2, or 3) is selected in the Wii System Settings.

If you have multiple connection files setup, and you have recently received a system update, it is possible that the update has caused the Wii console to select a different Connection File. Click here for step-by-step instructions on viewing your connection settings.

Make sure that your network's name (SSID) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings.

Log in to your router using the default IP (consult the router's owner's manual for assistance).

Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the Internet Settings of your Wii console that the SSID is appearing exactly as listed in your router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.
